First Year Experience – HKU

Students Under 18

You may still be under the age of 18 at the time of  admission to  HKU. In  this case, your parent/guardian is required to sign a consent form, without which the University may have difficulty in arranging some of the teaching and learning activities, and accommodation for you.

You will be generally treated as an adult and are expected to lead your academic and social lives in HKU as other students do. The University will correspond directly with you, but not your parents/guardians, on  things related to  you  such as course enrollment, payment status of fees, academic status, results and grades, etc. Your parent/guardian will only be contacted in emergency or other situations where potential risks are involved.
